Angels Landing

Climate Recreation Hydrology

Angels Landing is a prominent and iconic mountain peak located in the Intermountain West mountain range. Standing at an elevation of approximately 1,488 meters, it offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The mountain is known for its challenging and exhilarating hiking trail that attracts adventure enthusiasts from all over the world.

During the winter season, Angels Landing experiences varying snowpack levels, which can greatly influence the difficulty and safety of the hike. It is advisable for visitors to check local weather conditions and consult with park officials before attempting the ascent during this time. The mountain's snowpack can range from light dustings to heavy accumulations, making proper gear and precautions essential.

Angels Landing is not directly associated with any specific creeks or rivers, as it is primarily a standalone peak. However, nearby water bodies such as the Virgin River may receive runoff from the mountain during periods of snow melt or heavy rainfall.

The name "Angels Landing" is said to have been coined by Frederick Fisher, a Methodist minister who was part of a group exploring the area in the late 19th century. Legend has it that Fisher was so moved by the awe-inspiring views from the peak that he declared it must be a place where angels land. Over time, the name stuck, and Angels Landing has become a renowned destination for both hikers and nature lovers alike.
